A talk by Ellen friedman at the PyDataSG on December 6th 2016.
"There’s a revolution underway in how people work with data. Streaming data is no longer seen as a special use case – and that’s good a thing given that streaming is a better fit to the way life happens. This talk takes a look at the benefits of stream-first architecture and some of the emerging technologies that enable best practices with streaming. These include message transport with Apache Kafka or MapR Streams, and stream processing with Apache Flink. As a top level Apache project, Flink has an active and growing international community. The Flink engine offers robust, accurate and highly scalable real time stream processing, and it also works in batch. We’ll briefly explore how these new approaches and technologies are being put to use in real world situations."
